I sure hope the shooter wasn't one of their new carry permit holders.

Yeah, I know a few of them also and they ARE good people.

The Shiks have a martial tradition and reputation as fierce worriers. OK they had one major hiccup. Shiks are (or were) the sole cast allowed to join the ranks of bodyguards to India's Prime Ministers. Unfortunitely, in 1984, Prime Minister Indira Gandhi was assassinated by two of her own Shik bodyguards. As the Brits would say, "that was in rather bad taste."

40 miles from my house.

We had one similiar to this back in 05'

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Terry_Ratzmann

Except in this case this particular religous group met in a Sheraton Hotel I drive by every day on my way to work

I've have said it since the Colorado shooting (and really for years)..instead of a immature response of banning guns..lets return to the old west...anyone who passes a background check can open carry at any time...anywhere.

I think its time we all stop talking about it and open carry everywhere we legally can.

"A law enforcement official told NBC News the gunman who opened fire at the Sikh temple was dressed in tactical gear and armed with a single handgun."

Let me put this another way: I would consider any person who had suffered multiple gunshot wounds and still managed to shoot and kill a mass murderer to be a hero.

We need to hurry up and pass a law that no one will read banning tatical gear, for the children.


Best wishes to all those hurt and to the family of those killed.

actually in their holy book they are suppose to carry a kirpan ( a dagger or short sword) as a reminder of their faith and it ranks up there with a beard and turban as one every sikh is suppose to carry. I'm friends with a few and the argument whether the holy book meant just the dagger or (like the second amendment argument) means modern day firearms (tradition vs. defense) is a pretty vocal discussion.

I read on another forum that he allegedly called the temple to find out when they would be their busiest.

You know why her Sikh bodyguard gunned her down? Because she ordered the Indian Army to assault the Golden Temple, which is the religious center of Sikhism. And she kept her Sikh bodyguards on the job afterwards. How much of a dumbass do you need to be be to do that?

Very interesting. If carrying the dagger was meant to be functional as well as a symbolic representation of their faith, then I'd say it would be appropriate to carry both, the dagger for the symbolism and the handgun for the function since a dagger would not be as functional today.

Eye witness is saying four men dressed in black did the shooting, but police say it was only one.

I'm watching the local news and it was only 1 shooter who is now deceased due to a brave Oak Creek officer who took him out after getting shot!

How sad. It could have been a lot worse, thankfully an officer was able to end the threat. I too am awaiting the anti honky media storm, you just know they're licking their lips over this one.
